Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

 

--Hebrews 11:1

 

God loves you and has a plan for your life that is truly amazing. God has something significant that He wants to do in and through you.

 

Do you really believe that today?

 

Despite what our culture says, you're not here by accident! You’re here by divine Providence…and God has a plan and purpose for you. Not for just the Josephs of the world, but for the Joes, the Marys, the Bettys, the Sues, and the Bills. God has something significant for all of us to do…and that includes you!

 

Now, success is wonderful. As a matter of fact, the Scripture says that God gave Joseph great success. But beyond success, he had significance.

 

Joseph certainly had vision, courage, determination, character, ability, and perseverance—all the qualities of a leader. But there was one quality that stood out in this great man's life. That quality was faith.

 

Joseph trusted God throughout all of his days…in good times as well as bad times. And that faith is what gave Joseph significance!

 

In spite of the obstacles, against all the odds, this man persevered by faith. He started over many times in his life. He faced circumstances that would have defeated the average, ordinary individual. And yet regardless of the difficulties, he kept believing God. He kept following his Lord. He kept trusting his Master.

 

Why? Because Joseph believed that God had a plan for his life, and he was determined to discover his destiny. I mean, think about it: Joseph was despised and rejected by his own dysfunctional family! He was kidnapped and left for dead. He was sold as a slave. He was falsely accused and imprisoned. He was used and abused. He was failed and forgotten. And yet by faith he carried on!

 

And I want to encourage you to carry on by faith as well! Whether you’re in good times or bad times right now, God has a perfect plan for you. I hope you will trust in this promise today…and know that as a child of God, you have true significance in Him.

 

TRUe significance comes from trusting god for your destiny
